Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) 2022 hosts, Algeria, have picked the ticket for the quarter-finals after beating Ethiopia 1-0 in their second Group A game on Tuesday.

Algeria had edged fellow North Africans Libya 1-0 in the opening match of the 2022 CHAN tournament at the weekend.

Algeria hero Aimen Mahious’ 52nd-minute strike was enough to seal passage into the knockout round, becoming the first team to progress.

In the group’s other game, Libya suffered their second loss after going down 3-2 to Mozambique.

It is Mozambique’s first win of the tournament after they opened their campaign with a draw against Ethiopia.
